First some good news- Wifey's foot is NOT broken. Sweet! Still hurts like a mother fffffff...... but I'm sure not having to deal with more docs and the feecus that comes with them will help dull the pain.
My buddy Tom reports that other than some dry seals and a little less than normal oil levels the Reba is good. Soon as the seals come in from Bikeman.com World HQ it'll be good to go. Sweet!
A foot on the mend, a shock working, things are looking a bit better for heading down to the poison ivy capital of the world- The 12 Hours of Lodi Farms.
In other poison plant stuff, it seems that a lot of the pros came away from Sea Otter with Poison Oak. If your read Adam Craig's Houffalize World Cup report you no doubt read about his battle with it. I found this photo on CyclingNews.com that really shows it...
That could NOT have felt good with the sweat and dust. I super sized it for your poison oak viewing pleasure.
The weather f'ed my ride plans like a cheap hooker today. 5 o'clock brought some light rain, but radar showed big swath of storms coming so I bailed on the road ride. Turns out that the storms never really materialized around here 'till about the time I WOULD have been finishing up. Drat!
So I ended up with more time on the trainer. May have been best. The crusty scab on my palm still hurts an finding a comfy position on the bars is a bit of an issue. Plus I got to rock iPodious with a new live Pixies that I got off of eMusic.com. Oh well, recovery week right? Weekend looks good for mileage.
Also, it took 4 days, but it finally came. Sausage Legs. Happens every time I do an enduro. My legs swell a bit and I feel like they could split open. They should be down in a day or so.
Just makes them feel like this...
